Paul Crick's insight:

Using anchoring techniques allows you to be calm at the time your body is getting to fight. There's an excellent exercise where you experience a mild version of what's the worst that can happen whilst firing off positive anchors and entering into peripheral vision. The use of neuro-associative anchoring and changing visual focus works very effectively.

Despite having chosen a profession that demands they perform in front of people and be the focus of media attention the world over, these celebs aren't exactly comfortable on a stage and in front of a crowd.

Paul Crick's insight:

Posted this not because they are 'celebrities' but because it demonstrates the uniqueness of the condition and the mindset behind each individual's experience of stage fright.

 

In each case, there are clear signals for why they each experience stage fright and potential avenues that if explored, would help them overcome it.

Paul Crick's insight:

Placing undue expectation on your own shoulders sends energy in the wrong direction (i.e. inwards not outwards). Redirecting energy and letting go of the weight of expectation will enable a much more natural and authentic performance come through.

Mendler, who also released a “Live in London” EP during April, says that playing live “is the most fun part of it,” although she also owns up to some stage fright.
Paul Crick's insight:

Adopting a persona is a common approach to dealing with stagefright or attempting to distract yourself in some other way. The challenge is that ultimately distracts you from providing a 100% authentic performance because at some level you are working at being and / or thinking something you're not (e.g. think of the audience naked).

 

Better approaches exist to enable you to give 100% of you in your performance. Whilst Mendler's approach is good as far as it goes, it misses several tricks.

ANNA Pancaldi clearly remembers the time she froze with stage fright.
Paul Crick's insight:

The key when evaluating stage fright is to understand what is meant by being 'frozen'. It is simply a natural response that we as humans are programmed (in our limbic brain) to manifest when we sense a threat. Not having fear would be a bad thing because there are certain things where fear helps protect us from very real harm.

 

With stage fright, it is the meaning we give to how we perceive things that causes the challenge. By exploring this meaning and changing it in our minds (through our beliefs and values), our language and our physiology we can harness the natural arousal in energy we experience to our advantage on stage.

But yesterday the old boy claimed that he is now a martyr to stage fright.
Paul Crick's insight:

Stage fright is no respecter of gender or background becuase the underlying mechanism is in us all.

 

The primary differentiator is our past experiences, beliefs and our values and the metaphors and language we use to underpin these.

"What was I about to say? By the mass, I was about to say something. Where did I leave?
Paul Crick's insight:

Putting yourself on stage places you in an environment where your 'fight or flight' response kicks in. It is very natural and the extent to which it kicks in is based upon your past experiences, your values and your beliefs.

 

The subject of stage fright is no longer taboo and much respect is deserved for those that (i) speak up about it and (ii) learn to come to terms with it as part of their profession.

 

Eminently controllable through a multi-modal programme of treatment, stage fright no longer needs to be endured and, with a little effort on the performers part, can be made emminently manageable.

Susan Cain: The power of introverts

In a culture where being social and outgoing are prized above all else, it can be difficult, even shameful, to be an introvert. But, as Susan Cain argues in this passionate talk, introverts bring extraordinary talents and abilities to the world, and should be encouraged and celebrated. [TED.com]

~ ~ ~

Related:
Susan Cain notes Bill Gates is an introvert, but not shy, and Barbra Streisand, who famously suffers from stage fright, is a shy extrovert. Cain notes, “Shyness and introversion are not the same thing. Shyness is the fear of negative judgment, and introversion is a preference for quiet, minimally stimulating environments. - From my post Creative Introverts
http://blogs.psychcentral.com/creative-mind/2011/07/creative-introverts/

~~~

In her NYTimes article, Cain writes, "Solitude is out of fashion. Our companies, our schools and our culture are in thrall to an idea I call the New Groupthink, which holds that creativity and achievement come from an oddly gregarious place…But there’s a problem with this view. Research strongly suggests that people are more creative when they enjoy privacy and freedom from interruption." -From my post Developing Creativity in Solitude

Maralee McKee's curator insight, August 3, 2013 10:44 PM

The differnce between shyness, introversion, and being an extrovert. A fascinating talk. As an introvert (who isn't shy) I certianly enjoyed Ms. Cain's insight into the differnces. Spoiler alert: Barbra Streisand, says Ms. Cain, is a shy extrovert. Watch and see where you fit into the introversion/extroversion continuium.

How to Conquer Stage Fright and Focus on the Positive

Change your state of mind -- and vanquish your fear of failure -- by asking yourself the right questions.
Paul Crick's insight:

Beliefs and values are only one part of a complex equation that triggers stage fright. That said, using conversational techniques it is possible to rewire the brain and provide new meanings which in turn help moderate the symptoms of stage fright.

 

However, this is not the whole story. Dealing with stagefright requires a multi-modal and holistic approach (i.e. mind, body and spirit) to achieve a natural flowing performance.
